The students can use the following worksheet to organize their data. The questions at the bottom of the worksheet will help them determine how they will display their findings. They will also place their final snack choices at the end of the worksheet.
After completing the worksheet (except for their three snack choices), give them the worksheet to make their graphs. The graphing worksheet only allows them to make bar graphs. Therefore, if they have the worksheet ahead of time, they might be able to guess the answer. Go over their choice(s) of graphs before they actually make them. Explain why a bar graph is best. Furthermore, explain why two graphs are necessary; Increments measured with different units can’t go on the same graph.
